Health Issue Walk/Runs
Health issue walks promote program awareness and often include a fundraising component to fund research or support a nonprofit organization. Although health issue walks may not be designed specifically to encourage people walking, participants have often been affected by the health issue and an organized walk may encourage them to walk during recovery.
